How does hard water affect laundry?
When you add detergent to hard water, some of the compounds attach to calcium and magnesium granules that settle on the bottom of your washing machine, eventually retreating down the drain without actually cleaning your clothes. What a waste! 20 Mule Team Borax naturally softens hard water which protects your detergent - so it can maximize cleaning power. It just takes 1/2 cup of Borax laundry booster to every load to naturally soften hard water and improve your detergent's cleaning power.
When I heard about how hard water affects the ability of my detergent to clean my clothes, I was shocked. I have been doing laundry for years and knew nothing about this. I am glad I was able to try Borax and will continue to use it in my washing machine.
Borax is also effective on odors and stains.
